NYC Subway Stories.

Lately I’ve been riding the rails because of the snow, and my bike needing a new chain. I’m always struck with how different the vibe is underground. Nobody looks at each other. Nobody talks to each other. It’s like that on most subways all over the world – it’s almost like we’re all afraid of each other, so we put on these masks of indifference, devoid of emotion to protect us from an unseen enemy. And yet, as filmmaker Luke Rudkowski, a member of We Are Change, discovered while interviewing random people on the subway in New York; we are not so different, after all.
